Got #ADayIn Vienna? We’ll Tell You Exactly Where To Go!
Parks, rivers and woods go hand in hand with the baroque architecture, museums, palaces, concerts, theatres and opera houses to make Vienna a perfect blend of nature and culture.
But what if you just had 24hrs in hand? Well, here’s exactly where you should be heading if you had #ADayIn Vienna…
#1 Prater Wheel: Any shot of Vienna on screen is incomplete without a shot of the Wiener Riesenrad, the city’s giant ferris wheel. Soar 212 feet above ground for a unique view of the city on one of the earliest ferris wheels ever built.
#2 Burgtheater: A ticket to the largest and second-oldest theatre in Europe can transport you to the fascinating world of theatre and opera for 60 minutes. Be awed by the classic Burgtheater style in one of the most important German language theatres in the world.
#3 Schönbrunn Palace: A former imperial summer retreat, this 1441-room Baroque palace is one of Austria’s key architectural, cultural and historical monuments. This is as close as you get to living the life of a monarch (Unless you befriend a European royal along the way).
#4 Belvedere Palace: Retrace the steps of royalty who have graced the floors of Belvedere Palace. Want more? The historic Belvedere palace complex has two Baroque palaces, an Orangery and the Palace Stables for you to explore.
#5 State Opera House: With a history dating back to the mid-19th century, the Wiener Staatsoper is one of the busiest opera houses in the world. Don your best and enjoy the one of the 300 ballet and opera performances produced here every year.
